cAUTION: If you received a call from any phone number that appears to be from AT&T, and requested a callback or personal information, then it could be a scam call from a con artist looking for your personal information.
Legit Calls From AT&T : AT&T may call you only if there is a notification, feedback, or an unpaid bill on your account; they do not call customers for promotional offers or account issue resolution.

Scam Calls Impersonating AT&T: If you receive a call from any phone number that pretends to be AT&T and requests personal information, it is a scam call.
